Actor/Activist, Ali Momen, firmly believes the most significant challenge facing society today is faction and division.

For Ian Eisendrath, being an artist is like coming home. So many kids, Ian shares, don't feel like they fit or belong until they find their creative outlet. By embracing chance, trusting his gut and putting himself out there in big ways, Ian has done just that. The University of Michigan School of Music graduate could never have predicted the path he would forge that has included various roles on the original Broadway version of Come From Away, which led him to a 2018 Olivier award and a 2017 Grammy nomination. Ian served as the Music Supervisor, Executive Music Producer, and Arranger for Come From Away. After the show's successful run on Broadway, Ian then music-supervised the Apple TV film version, which was recorded live on stage in New York City. Ian is currently the Executive Music Producer on Apple's Spirited (starring Ryan Reynolds, Will Ferrell & Octavia Spencer) and his upcoming projects include Disney's live-action Snow White (starring Rachel Zegler & Gal Gadot) and Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile (starring Shawn Mendes, Javier Bardem & Constance Wu). Ian has traveled the world with his family and continues to take exceptional risks that seem to have beautiful rewards. He's always looking for that “I can't not do this” feeling as that's his sign to go, go, go! We love when our creative worlds collide! Ian is also a big fan of former WIC guest, Josh Breckenridge (we're big fans also!). It was fun to chat about that during the episode. Follow Ian on Instagram and on the web.  Make sure to follow this podcast everywhere you find podcasts, leave a rating and a review, and slip into our Instagram DMs at @wasitchance. More about Heather via @vickeryandco on Instagram, @Braveheather on TikTok, and listen to The Brave Files More about Alan via @theatre_podcast on Instagram and listen to The Theatre Podcast with Alan Seales EPISODE TAKEAWAYS So many artists are kids that felt they “didn't have a place” when they were younger. Access to live theater and music can, literally transform a child life.  Mentors matter from a very young age.  You have to ask for it … take the risk, put yourself out there. It's with the risk because you never know what the answers will be if you don't ask.  Sometimes we can love what we do so much that it induces fear of failure.  It's amazing what people will do for and with you once they know how deeply and passionately you care. That you won't lead them stray because you care too much to let it fall apart.  Art, music, and theater are so powerful. They help people heal, grow and learn.  Look for that “I can't NOT do this” feeling and then go, go, go. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Countless Journeys

Gander, Newfoundland was made famous internationally with the hit Broadway musical Come From Away. The Tony Award-winning blockbuster centered around how the town handled the massive influx of stranded airline passengers impacted by the grounding of flights after the September 11th terrorist attacks in the United States in 2001. What a lot of people don't realize is that Gander was able to handle that crisis in part because of its experience as the site of defections of tens of thousands of refugees from Eastern Bloc countries during the Soviet era. Some days more than 300 people would claim refugee status in Gander. More than 3000 Bulgarian refugees defected while they were en route through the Gander International Airport. And among them were artists Luben Boykov and Elena Popova. In 1990 the young couple was just starting a family in Sophia, Bulgaria when they made the life-changing decision to board a plane for Cuba under the guise of going there to a holiday. But their real plan was to defect once the plane landed in Gander to refuel. In this final episode of season three of Countless Journeys, Luben and Elena share their harrowing tale of fighting their way off that flight, uncertain of what lay ahead. “The plane started descending,” says Luben Boykov. “We had no idea where we were. Because no information was given, no PA announcements, nothing.” “I was choking. I had tears in my eyes. I couldn't breathe,” recalls Elena Popova. “I was trying desperately to take a breath of air and I did, and it was minus 20. I could feel the cold air, but it was the freshest breath of air I ever took.” The couple would go on to make Newfoundland their home for close to thirty years, where they raised their daughters and created art that is among gallery and private collections throughout the world.

September 11, 2001 was a day of shocking violence and loss. But, in the aftermath, it was also a day of heroism and of community. As planes bound for New York were being turned away, many of them found themselves being directed to the small town of Gander, in Newfoundland, Canada. Almost seven thousand people landed in Gander on that day. It could have been impossible. It could have been overwhelming. But instead, the town opened its arms to those strangers. Their story was turned into a Tony Award winning musical, Come From Away, and in the Drawing Room, Gander residents Oz Fudge and Brian Mosher share how those days changed their lives.

On September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the US caused 38 planes to be grounded in the town of Gander, located on the island of Newfoundland–often called “The Rock”--in Canada.  A town with fewer than 10,000 residents suddenly found itself hosting 6,579 people, representing 100 different countries, along with 19 animals. When the passengers deplaned on “The Rock” after hours of sitting, scared and uninformed, on a stuffy airplane, each person was met with food… and a hug. And that was only the start of the Gander hospitality. This episode explores not only the inspiring true stories behind the uplifting hit musical, referred to by one critic as “A celebration of the best of humankind,” but also shares how “Come From Away” was created, and the lasting impact made by 9,000 kind-hearted townspeople who reached out to embrace and befriend 6,600 frightened, hurting strangers.

The early church gained in notoriety and vitality by becoming a community with hospitality and generosity. They welcomed new persons into the fellowship and ultimately, in Acts 15, extended the reach of God's love to people who would otherwise be excluded. This spirit of expansive welcome is rendered beautifully in the production Come From Away, based on the true story of a small town of Gander, Newfoundland, who welcomed frightened, weary travelers in the immediate aftermath of 9/11.

THEIR FORM WASN'T PERFECT BUT THEIR FOLLOW-THROUGH WAS ALRIGHT. Judy and Linda commentate on episodes 9-12 of "Twenty-Five, Twenty-One" (스물다섯 스물하나), starring Kim TaeRi and Nam JooHyuk.   Digressions:   1:49 - Listener E-mails! There may be some "Boys Over Flowers" ranting. 14:15 - Linda is all caught up on "Business Proposal" (사내 맞선), which is tongue-in-cheek rom-com fun! 16:45 - Judy watched episode 7 of "Thirty, Nine" (서른, 아홉) and HOLY JEEBUS it was tedious and infuriating. We have officially given up on it. 23:32 - Linda has finished watching all of "True Beauty" (여신강림), and it was dumb fun. 25:23 - Judy is playing "Chicken Police - Paint it RED!", a Polish indie video game with surprising depth and production values. If you enjoy film noirs, it might be worth checking out! 28:19 - Linda watched Pixar's latest film, "Turning Red", which is great, but it's missing a little something that she can't quite put her finger on. 30:50 - ***SPOILER WARNING*** Linda watched "Spider-Man: No Way Home", which is fun but not as great as the first two movies starring Tom Holland. 33:03 - On Apple TV+, there's a Broadway production of "Come From Away". Linda LOVED it. 34:15 - "The Adam Project" is a typical fun Ryan Reynolds action movie. 34:32 - Linda usually detests anything to do with "Romeo and Juliet" but she found Steven Spielberg's remake of "West Side Story" watchable for the dancing and singing. 36:17 - Linda tried "How I Met Your Father", and does not recommend it.   Some Korean terms:   한국말: [han-gook-mal] Korean. 인절미: [een-jeol-mee] sweet rice cake dusted with roasted soybean powder. 선배: [seon-beh] person in an organization with more experience; opposite of "후배" [hoo-beh]. 느끼함: [neu-ggee-ham] cheesy; corny; greasy. 엿: [yeot] Korean traditional sticky candy made with grains. 퐁퐁: [pong-pong] pompom. 딱밤: [ddak-bam] finger flick usually on the forehead; a punishment used in games. 오징어: [oh-jing-eo] squid.   Audio Credits: Laszlo Vincze - "Chicken Police - Paint it RED!" - "For a Handful of Feathers" Ludwig Goransson - "Turning Red" - "Turning Red" Michael Giacchino - "Spider-Man: No Way Home" - "Arachnoverture" Irene Sankoff  and David Hein - "Come From Away" - "Me and The Sky" Leonard Bernstein - "West Side Story" - "Cool"   Please send any questions, comments or suggestions on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@kdramamyeyesout) or e-mail us (kdramamyeyesout(at)gmail.com).   You can become our patron at patreon.com/kdramamyeyesout for as little as $1 per month!   Download this and other episodes and while you're there, write us a review:   Apple Podcasts   Google Play Music   Stitcher   Spotify   Libsyn RSS   The KDMEO theme music is 'Cute', by Bensound (www.bensound.com), and is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivatives 4.0 International.

This is the second part of my recent conversation with Irene Sankoff & David Hein -- the dynamic writing team and married couple that created the international smash hit musical Come From Away. Five productions of Come From Away have recently reopened around the world: Broadway, Toronto, London, Sydney and on tour across America. A new Dutch production has just opened, as well, and a live filmed version of the show is streaming on Apple TV+. On the previous episode Irene and David related how they got hooked on musicals, and how they went from their first show based on a true story -- My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding -- to deciding to create a musical based on the real life events that happened in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland in the days following 9/11. They also described what it was like to attend the 10th Anniversary of the events in Gander and then begin to transform the stories they heard there into a musical during an early workshop production at The Canadian Music Theatre Project at Sheridan College. We also explored the classic Broadway shows that influenced and inspired the writing of their book, music, and lyrics for Come From Away. If you missed part one you may want to go back and catch up on that episode before you listen to this one. Today we look at the extensive development process that CFA went through on its journey to Broadway - including a workshop in Seattle, a series of productions at the La Jolla Playhouse, The Seattle Rep, Ford's Theater in DC. and the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto, as well as a thrilling concert presentation in Gander where it all began.  Back in 2015, I served as the Executive Producer and Artistic Director of The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle and, as such, I had the great pleasure of co-producing that original Seattle workshop of Come From Away. This was the first time that the show's Tony award winning director Christopher Ashley and choreographer, Kelly Devine began to work on the show -- and it was great fun to recall that exciting experience with Irene and David. Come From Away is the fifth musical to originate in Canada and eventually open on Broadway.  The first was 1974's Rockabye Hamlet with book, music and lyrics by Cliff Jones. This rock musical adaptation of Shakespeare was originally titled Kronborg 1582 and was well received, first as a radio series on the CBC, and then at the Charlottetown Theatre Festival and on tour in Canada, before being retitled and opening on Broadway with Gower Champion as the director. It became a legendary flop and closed after 7 performances. Next, in 1980 came the intimate and engaging Billy Bishop Goes To War written by John McLachlan Gray the show featured one actor to playing18 different roles to tell the story of real life Canadian fighter pilot Billy Bishop during the first World War. This show nearly doubled the run of Rockabye Hamlet closing after 12 performances. However, over the next ten years Billy Bishop Goes To War received scores of productions at theaters all across North America.  The Story Of My Life, with music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and book by Brian Hill, opened on Broadway in 2009. Unfortunately, it had an even shorter run than either of the previous two Canadian shows. However, one year earlier, a group of Canadian writers finally scored a significant hit with The Drowsy Chaperone – book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar, and music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert & Greg Morrison. This delightful show opened on Broadway in 2008, received Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Original Score, and ran for 674 performances.   There have been a few other Canadian writers that found success on Broadway – Galt McDermott being the most famous of them – but that was with shows that originated in the US.   Learn more about your ad choices.
